There are no anointed ... not yet. There are no 144,000. They are yet to arrive.
I know what JWs teach as I am an ex-JW of more than 30 years (disassociated).
People and organizations are looking within the wrong time period concerning the arrival of the 144,000.
The arrival of the 144000 comes at the first resurrection occurence by Christ. That does not occur until he is given his kingdom over the earth of one thousand years by his father in heaven.
It is ASSUMED that Christ has been in kingdom power since 1914 (for almost 100 years now). This is a gross asumption. No date for Christs return in kingdom power can be derived from any book; namely, the Bible. Why? Because Jesus himself said that it is not possible to know the time of his return; that only the Father has such KNOWLEDGE. That his disciples WOULD NOT KNOW when he would return, but to be alert and watchful. (Matthew 24:36, Matthew 24:42, and Acts 1:7)
I take sides with what Christ has said. Any date such as 1914 is false and an entire system of belief has been built upon it and that belief system is crumbling. This weak and false foundation (and teaching) accounts for the many "New Light" teachings emanating from the Watch Tower organization. God does not make mistakes, speaks untruths, or gives bad food. It is obvious that the 1914 is not from God, but from men. If it was from God, it would stand rock-solid against any storm.
The arrival of the 144000 is yet future. Too, there is no mention of "remnant" in association with the 144000. Someone is making this stuff up. Yes, a remnant is mentioned in Watch Tower publications, but neither God or Christ spoke of a remnant of 144,000.
Let me explain to you the real reason why the so-called anointed (which are not that at all) are really of no consequence to the Governing Body at the headquarters. It is because the so-called anointed remnant are persons of various mixes of races, languages and genders. The Governing Body which has traditionally been an all White mans club intends to keep it that way. True, there is one person of African descent (Sam Herd), but that is a relatively recent occurence. It is still predominately a White mans club. Technically - and based on WT teaching - Samuel Herd and some of the other members on the Governing Body do not quality to be of the anointed as their dates of birth places them beyond the cutoff date.
If 1914 is wrong - and I am convinced it is according to what Christ said - then he has not been given kingdom power yet, no war has occurred in heaven yet, the beast and its image has not arrived yet, there are no 144000, no remnant. In other words, nothing in the Book of Revelation has had a start of being fufilled yet.
The world has been led down the wrong path and are listening to organizations of men and not to the one The Most High God commanded them to listen to. (Luke 9:35)
